The first time I stayed at a bed & breakfast was when my wife and I went on our first anniversary vacation weekend. We knew we wanted to continue away, we just have not been sure where or the things we wanted to do.
A colleague of hers showed her a book of bed & breakfasts’ around the United Proclaims. She brought the book home to me to take a look to see what I thought about going to one too for our anniversary. With zero experience (at the time) and zero knowledge of bed & breakfasts’ I thought i was a bit skeptical. Can i really want to spend my weekend staying in someone’s home?
The more I discover the bed & breakfast lifestyle, the more I became intrigued, until finally my partner got hooked and we booked a bed & breakfast in upstate Vermont. I can honestly say it was a fun time. The bed & breakfast owners treated us like royalty, waited on us like we were a king and queen, and meal truck (that was included within our purchase price) was simply unbelievable.
Since then my family and I have been to two other bed & breakfasts, one in Williamsburg, VA and another in upstate California near Seneca Lake. Although the concept each bed & breakfast were similar, these folks were different in a variety of ways. For instance in Vermont at breakfast and dinner (both that were included) we sat at our own table in the adjoining restaurant. In NY and VA we ate a big table with most of the other guests. In VA the owners took care of everything, well them and their kids. In NY and VT the owners ran the place but also had help to get rooms ready and continue the place pure. In VT we had our own outside entrance to room as if your room was our very own house. In NY and VA you’d your own bedroom in the same house with the other guests.
Regardless of whichever style you choose, if you never ever stayed at a bed & breakfast you should. Each one was wonderful a person really felt familiar were part of the owner’s family while you stayed there.
I would recommend first pick a locale where you know you would really love to stay. Anyone like the heaps? How about the sun or a tropical island? Once you recognize what you want to do, take a look up the bed & breakfasts within areas that you have targeted and start reading up with them. Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other book stores have a variety of books you can try without purchasing to obtain this information. You can also go to your local library or look for your bed & breakfast directory online.
Once you have the location and have it narrowed down 1 or two possible bed & breakfast choices, start pricing them out and see if they are formed in your budget. I will tell you that they a bit pricier then a normal hotel room (some of them anyway). However verify what kind of amenities you get for your offering price. Most come with breakfast, otherwise always be just be called Bed & leave of my house in the morning. You get the guide. Some also serve dinner and offer afternoon tea & snack foods. Find out what you get for your cash flow. It will definitely assistance with your decision.
